Feb 4 - Aquafaba Meringues
Aquafaba may as well be the biggest culinary 'discovery' of 2015, and the blogging population is probably kicking themselves in the rear for having poured this magic potion down the drain for decades.
Its not a fancy elixir, just the protein rich liquid that is the byproduct of cooking garbanzo beans. Its magic lies in its uncanny property of whipping up into stiff peaks just like egg whites. and where there is well beaten egg whites, there inevitably will be meringues.
This was my very first attempt at playing with aquafaba and for a newbie, this was a smash hit. For those interested, here is the link to the recipe.
